LinkedIn has made many changes recently to personal and business pages. One change I have seen that I’m particularly interested in is the “Endorsement” section. Is this the equivalent to giving someone a +k on Klout? One nice difference for endorsing on LinkedIn to me is that you select your own skills and expertise for other to endorse you on. Where as in Klout you can get +k’s on things like mom’s, yoga and weddings (personal experience) simply because you have engaged (no pun intended) people on those topics. I personally like that I can get endorsed on LinkedIn on topics and skills that matter like marketing, social media and ok mom’s matter.
What are your thoughts on the new Endorsement section on LinkedIn? Do you think it shows influence and makes your profile better?
